A crowd of hundreds of mainly immigrant workers that have been excluded from receiving any funding or assistance from the government marched over both the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Bridge on Friday morning. A coalition of more than a hundred organizations participated in the action, calling for the state to fund excluded workers.
A Demonstration of Excluded Workers took over Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges.
The workers consisted of taxi drivers, restaurant workers, construction workers, and many other essential groups. The workers' major demands are a tax on the rich and monetary support to illegal immigrants impacted by COVID-19. Watch our video and hear Assemblywoman Carmen DelLaRosa, from the west Bronx, talking about her plan to tax the rich and support those in need.
